Thanks folks.

Honestly, it's not that big of a deal. All you need is the right tools and follow the instruction closely & patiently. It took me a few weekends to finish it, while the more seasoned builders can do it in one sitting. Also, I actually messed up in a few spots, including the slashed forehead. But it's mot a big deal and I grew to become liking it.

Ew Haro, that R2D2 wannabe.


I will show myself out now.

Also are SD Gundam not as common as HG ones?
Haro >>> R2D2 :fashionblob:

By common, do you mean the availability or the variants? In terms of availability they're more or less the same, I guess. Produced a fixed number at launch, then re-produced later as needed. But when it comes to variations, SD kits are way more scarce compared to HGs. In fact, HG is the most completed line above all. 1/100 MG is probably the second, and then followed by SD and 1/60 PG. There's also NG (No Grade) which is kinda rare too, and Mega Size kits that only have a few variants.

I don't know if any of you love them so I am just leaving these here.



Also, be sure to tune into WonHobby 33 tomorrow. Looks like a lot of news are incoming. Start from 10am JST on 29th.

Speaking of figures, I also just picked this one up earlier today. A very rare Asia only release which was a tie up with SDGO game from 2011. It's more pricey than every SD gunpla I have so far, but it's totally worth it.

Goodsmile killed so many wallets today.

EdwardTivrusky Kvik You may want to check the news. The site is quite buggy so do check all the tags. :)
Thanks! Even my phone was dancing on the grave of my wallet today as a bunch of the news panels were about WonHobby!
My only sanctuary is hoping these releases are difficult to get hold of and import!

Definitely not difficult if you do not miss the preorder. I remember you want Hololive Gamers, correct? As their grey prototypes are out, I think they will be up for preorder around August~September. Those with painted prototypes will arrive sooner, around June or July.

This is something that I've just noticed quite recently. What's up with those grey figurines, are we supposed to paint them?
Oh, not like that. Grey color is useful for checking faulty places as well as making the details easier to see. So companies usually apply a top coat to the prototype for checking and showcase. In 3D rendering software, the 3D object is grey in default due to the same reasons. The top coat is something like this:


After finalizing the design by numerous checks, the team will make a copy to the original sculpt so that they can create a painted sample. If a company presents a painted sample, it usually means that the figure is at later stage of development.

Hmm, spiritale... Taito's premium figure brand. Nothing release yet so beware that their quality isn't guaranteed. The color sample does look great though.
